chinese president xijinping has made a stinging rebuke to the united states‘ recent resistance to international agreements, including the paris climate accord. he said to leaders attending the brics summit that countries needed to work closely to build an open world economy. the telegraph business section says a raft of heavyweight clients including banking giant hsbc have dropped pr firm bell pottinger after the agency was condemned for running a campaign that stoked racial tensions in south africa. the guardian financial pages carry a warning from the archbishop of canterbury, justin welby, who said the uk's economic model is "broken". mr welby said the gap between the richest and poorest parts of the country was significant and de—stabilising. and finally, on front of the telegraph we have a photo of us actress meghan markle, who has spoken about her love for prince harry in public
5:46 am
for the first time, saying: "personally, i love a great love story. " the star of us drama suits has been speaking to vanity fair saying the pair are enjoying "special" time together. good job, really. you said that with so good job, really. you said that with so much feeling and love and warmth. we will get onto that. with me is nina trentmann from the wall street journal. good morning. let's start at the top, shalvey, and that is the donald trump message, which is "we don't wa nt trump message, which is "we don't want you any more". it is a tough message and it hasn't gone down well. that is true. as you said, it hasn't gone down well. we saw protests in dc protesting against the end of the daka programme in the
5:47 am
us. interesting of course it comes from a man who descends from immigrants himself, who is fulfilling a campaign promise he made on the campaign trail. we've seena made on the campaign trail. we've seen a lot of criticism from corporate america yesterday a large numberof firms corporate america yesterday a large number of firms saying this is not the right step and it is not the right way for us to go. when you say daka, deferred action for childhood arrivals, 800,000 young people affected by this —— daca. this is a programme barack 0bama put in place to try to solve this issue of children or young people who have grown up children or young people who have grown up in the us and have not had official status. donald trump is saying "we need proper reform of this process" and that daca programme was brought in because of a lack of action on fundamental reform. and it seems to be with everything we discuss in the us, tax reform, healthcare, their situation,
5:48 am
is this issue of not being able to reform things properly or get anything through congress, which means you've got this kind of fudge. is that something...? means you've got this kind of fudge. is that something. . . ? it is a very good point. congress has been asked to fix the situation before and mr trump has said "i want a replacement for daca" which remains to be seen, whether it is realistic, although the republicans control the majority, so far progress on major things as tax and other things has been limited. the points about this also is that this is overwhelmingly about mexicans, isn't it? 600,000 are mexican and we know what the donald trump policy towards the mexican border is so there is anxiety about what any replacement might be and what the step would look like. that's true, and of course, given the us is in the process of renegotiating nafta,
5:49 am
talks happened over the weekend, thatis talks happened over the weekend, that is of course something where, if you are mexican, you could take that more personally than if you are from a different country. the interesting thing is that in the end must have said that these 800,000 you mentioned, of which around 700,000 are in work, it doesn't really change much in terms of the overall size of the american economy in terms of the amount of people working in the us with unemployment relatively low at 4.4% last month, this is more like a domestic policy issue than an economic issue. in the uk in the meantime, this 82 page paper marked "highly sensitive" has been leaked from the home office to the guardian, it has it on the front page, it is a revealed story, the intentions once we leave the eu when it comes to immigration. the government in the uk is concerned
5:50 am
about similar things to its us counterpart, curbing immigration especially in low skilled sectors after brexit, and talks about limiting the ability to work in the uk, toa limiting the ability to work in the uk, to a certain amount of time, and also making sure that people are not as able as before to have their familyjoin as able as before to have their family join them once as able as before to have their familyjoin them once they have taken up work here in the uk. yes, interesting to see what's coming out, because this is the nub of the referendum, isn't it, migrants and migration. i suppose there will be all of those who thought it was a good thing putting up their hands and cheering, while everyone else will say "this is what we feared". s —— this comes at a time with low unemployment in the uk. it is not like we had unemployment of 10%.m is low for uk standards and you can
5:51 am
of course make the point that in the past couple of years the uk has added a lot ofjobs in low—paying sectors and they are people who have been claiming eu immigration for that. but you also have companies and corporate to say that if this is forced through the weight was laid out the beginning, that this would limit uk growth because people are not able to filljobs the way they did before. yeah. let's look at president xijinping, because he is now the great globaliser and the american president is the great isolationist. yes, interesting swap over the course of a year, yeah. xi jinping was speaking at the brics summit in china, and was lauding again the advantages of globalisation, of course. he did not say that out of nowhere because of course china has in the past couple of decades benefited hugely from globalisation and wants to continue
5:52 am
doing that. it's quite interesting as well because of course china is investing massively on trade around the world, its belt and braces investments, something like $180 billion between china and right back here to europe. so much investment going on about trade and the movement of goods, isn't it? yes, as you pointed out, the belt and braces initiative is trying to revive the silk road on a country level and also on a sea level. of course, in the end, this all benefits china —— silk road. well, yeah, true, very true. now, let's look at a man who speaks with moral authority for many people, the archbishop of canterbury. it is a very familiar story, isn't it, about the growing inequality in the uk, the guardian, isn't it, the uk economy, but his voice carries quite a lot of weight. justin welby is someone who is
5:53 am
listened to in the uk quite closely, and what he's saying here is something which he has set in the past before, that "in the end the problem with the uk economy, although we have growth, it is not the right kind of growth" and the current model in the uk leading to a “ an uneven current model in the uk leading to a —— an uneven distribution and the wage growth isn't keeping up, even though the growth is around and wages should be rising faster than they currently do. many are talking about this interview between meghan markle and vanity fair in the 0ctober edition and you can see the whole issue now. david is smiling. speculation is rife now of the announcement of an engagement, this kind of chitchat. no talk from her about marriage, though, is that?” about marriage, though, is that?|j haven't about marriage, though, is that?” haven't read the interview, to be honest. no interest... no, no, no, other things on this morning. you have an american... taking the lead
5:54 am
on the public position of her and harry. and here she is, she is an american divorcee, who seems to be saying "get yourself ready, there is a future in this". but of course i guess for that there has to be approval from buckingham palace. it seems according to the story that buckingham palace was informed of the interview before so it is not something which comes out of nowhere. she is playing her cards right. it would be a shock if you put that out without the palace. absolutely. that wouldn't go down well. i don't think they have that much leeway at this stage. thank you for joining much leeway at this stage. thank you forjoining us on the news review. and i like that story. i know you do. i like a love story! he likes a love story. we hope you liked it. we will see very soon. have a good day. goodbye for now. good morning. hot on the heels of hurricane harvey comes irma, and this has the potential to be a catastrophic hurricane. already a category 5, we have sustained winds of 185mph,
5:55 am
potentially gusting to 220mph. you can see quite clearly the eye of the storm here on the satellite picture. it's notjust the strength of the winds and the volume of the rain, it's also a significant storm surge that's heading towards the leeward isles. the storm surge is where, underneath this area of low pressure, it literally lifts the surface of the sea by as much as 9—11 feet, descending across these caribbean islands. so certainly we'll need to keep you updated on developments of that storm. back closer to home, things are a little quieter. we have got more of a westerly direction to the source of our air now, that means slightly fresher and it does mean that first thing in a morning we could actually see temperatures into single figures in more rural spots. so it will be a chilly start but potentially a dry one, with some sunshine coming through. there will be a scattering of showers into the far north—west with more of a significant breeze here. but the best of the sheltered south—eastern areas should see some
5:56 am
sunshine and, as a consequence, we should get some warmth as well. highest values possibly up to 20 degrees, as opposed to 1a to 17 further north and west. now, as we move out of wednesday, into thursday, the winds will strengthen again, and we will see more significant rain. an area of low pressure will move in from the atlantic. it's going to bring heavy rain to scotland and northern ireland, eventually moving through the borders into the north of england and north wales. further south of that, it's a drier story, but it does mean a pretty disappointing day on thursday afternoon in scotland. underneath the cloud, with wind and the rain, 13—15 degrees at the very best. some of the rain quite heavy close to the lake district, and stretching over the higher ground of wales. sheltered eastern areas should cling on to some sunshine and, if this happens, we could see 19—20 degrees perhaps across the southeast through london. then further west, with more of a fresher westerly breeze, a little more cloud and a slightly fresher feel. with that low pressure, with its front, sweeps south and east, during thursday night, into friday. it takes a spell of significant rain with it as well. wrapped around that low,
5:57 am
there will be some squally showers. so some rain to come for england and wales, for a time. some of the showers heavy, with some hail and some thunder into the far north—west. and temperatures, again, pretty disappointing. i can offer you something a little better as we move into the start of the weekend. drier through england and wales with a scattering of showers into the far north—west. take care. hello, this is breakfast, with dan walker and louise minchin. a drastic plan to curb the number of eu migrants living and working in the uk. a leaked home office document says the free movement of people will be banned after brexit, but the government says nothing's been signed off yet. good morning, it's wednesday the 6th of september. also this morning: hurricane irma, one of the most powerful atlantic storms ever recorded,
5:58 am
has begun lashing islands in the caribbean. just half of dentists in england are accepting new nhs patients, a bbc investigation reveals.
